3D Accelerator Review Step One - 3D Performance, the Real Deal

GLQuake BIGASS1 Benchmark - AMD K6 233

The AMD K6 may be performing very well in Direct3D, but in GLQuake it takes a hit. The decrease in frame rate compared to an Intel Pentium MMX system is very significant when you look at the CPU sensitive cards like the Obsidian 100SB. However, an owner of a Hercules Thriller 3D, a Diamond Stealth II S220, a Hercules Stingray 128/3D or an Intergraph Intense 3D Voodoo couldn't care less about owning an AMD or Intel Socket 7 CPU. The results are close to identical. This should be very interesting to those who want a powerful CPU for their business system, where the AMD easily beats the Pentium MMX. It does NOT always have to be an Intel CPU for good 3D gaming.
